A floating restaurant gracing the banks of the River Medway, The Barge makes waves with modern European fare served up inside a picturesque, wood-panelled setting. The crafty chefs concoct flavour-fresh dishes inspired by Spanish and Italian cooking, using ingredients sourced from local farmers and nearby fisherman wherever possible. Found a few minutes' hop from Maidstone town centre, the eatery boasts panoramic views of the river, inviting eyes to feast upon the surrounding historic visual treats and water skimming swans.
Hungry couplings can stroll along to the permanently moored barge and kick start appetites with freshly baked bread and a bowl of zesty olives to share. Once the starter has been polished off, diners will get to pick four tapas dishes to share between them, choosing from a tasty assortment of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Patrons may opt for the cannon of salt marsh lamb, celeriac puree, dauphinoise potato, and rosemary and red current jus (£7.50). Fish lovers can opt for the shell baked Rye Bay scallops cooked with garlic, shallots, tomato, lemon, parsley and topped with breadcrumbs(£7.50).
